Art in the City is also a platform for generating and distributing knowledge concerning artworks in the city and questions about art in public space. The main formats for achieving this are interviews with artists, talks, symposia, archive presentations and hybrid exhibition formats.
An important part of the research-driven way of working are thematic research projects, in which a specific aspect or piece of the Art in the City collection is considered more closely. The inclusion of multiple approaches and a combination of both artistic and academic perspectives are essential to all our research projects.
Art in the City administers ever-expanding archives that contain important information on the collection and its history: historical pictures, official documents concerning acquisitions and decisions, correspondence with artists and museum staff, catalogues, newspaper clippings, etc. Inventorising these archives and making them accessible, both physically and digitally, is a long-term project to which we shall devote ourselves in the years to come.
